Buildings are a necessary part of each farm unit. They are used to provide shelter and facilities for farm family living, to house livestock, for storage and processing of food and feed, and for utility storage or service. Most farm buildings are designed to be used for many years. A carefully planned, well-located building carefully adapted to the use for which it is intended, is a profitable investment and a source of satisfaction. On the other hand, a poorly planned and improperly built structure may prove both costly and unsatisfactory. Every building on the farm represents a longtime investment and plans for any proposed building should be carefully selected and studied.
